Chechen leader screams at soccer ref

MOSCOW (AP) - Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov has apologized for screaming at a soccer referee over a stadium loudspeaker.

The leader of the Russian province, who has repeatedly accused of human rights abuses, was furious Sunday after Terek Grozny captain Rizvan Utsiev was dismissed for a bad challenge.

As the referee showed Utsiev a second yellow card, Kadyrov grabbed a microphone and shouted, ``The ref's been bought off! You're an ass!'' His voice boomed across the stadium.

Kadyrov said Monday that his reaction was ``a cry from the soul of all Chechen fans'' and accused the referee of bias against Terek in the Russian league game.

Russian soccer's governing body says it will investigate.
